ABOUT BLAKE POULIOT

Establishing himself as one of Canada’s most promising young artists, violinist Blake Pouliot is the Grand Prize winner of the 2016 Orchestra Symphonique de Montréal (OSM) Manulife Competition. Pouliot has been described by the Toronto Star as having, “the whole package… the look, charisma and talent,” and after his performance of the Korngold Violin Concerto at his debut with the Montreal Symphony and conductor Vasily Petrenko in February 2017, he was described by Montreal’s La Presse as “Clearly. Absolutely. Undoubtedly virtuoso.” Recent and upcoming highlights include return engagements with the National Arts Centre Orchestra and the Montreal and Toronto Symphonies, and debuts with the Milwaukee, Seattle and Vancouver Symphonies. Pouliot has also been heard on national radio broadcasts on CBC Radio-Canada and on American Public Media as a 2017/18 Artists-in-Residence with Performance Today. Blake Pouliot’s orchestral repertoire varies from romantic favorites by Beethoven and Brahms to the more contemporary works by Korngold and Piazzolla. Pouliot performs on the 1729 Guarneri del Gesù, on generous loan from the Canada Council for the Arts Musical Instrument Bank as First Laureate of their 2015 Competition.
